Gaelic Toddler Groups

Gaelic Toddler Groups

Care & Learning Alliance (CALA), and Bòrd na Gàidhlig (BnG) are working in partnership with Highland Council, developing a vibrant Gaelic 0-3 early years sector across the Highlands.

Four part-time Gaelic Toddler Development Workers support and promote Gaelic language learning and usage amongst our youngest children and their parents through quality play experiences at Gaelic Toddler groups, utilising local and national guidance including ‘Realising the Ambition: Being me‘ and  ‘Bòrd na Gàidhlig’s Early Years Toolkit‘. They encourage and provide support and information to parents who are considering bilingualism for their children through Gaelic Education.
